The afternoon temperature in Dalyan in November averages 19°C and you will need to bring a light sweater or jacket.  April is also a lovely time to visit.
GETTING ABOUT DALYAN
There are many ways to get out and about around Dalyan.  The local buses (Dolmus) are an efficient and cheap way of seeing the local area and are a great way of getting to other local towns or Turtle beach.  They depart from Dalyan town centre but can also be stopped by flagging them down.  The buses run from early morning until late at night and  as an example of price, Ortaca which is 10 km away is only 4.25 YTL each person.

You can also use the local cooperative boats for many sightseeing trips, including turtle watching or just cruising up the river into the lake.  There is also a frequent boat service to Turtle beach.

In Dalyan you can also hire bikes, scooters, including mobility scooters and of course a car should you wish to explore further afield.  If you are interested in any of these please let us know and we will be glad to help arrange it for you.
